As for clothing I thought a detailed list might be interesting. On deck, I wear my brown fisherman's super tough wellies, aka Sitka Slippers, with sock liners and fleece socks. Glove liners and insulated industrial rubber gloves. From the skin out, a thermal vest with long sleeves, T shirt, no knickers or thermals over the nethers (because they promote the most agonising gunwale bum) so a fleece mid layer known as salopettes, with a fleece hoodie on top. Sometimes a balaclava and neck tube. On top of all that, a Mustang survival suit or a float coat and Henri pants if it's not too cold. Goggles if it's snowing or windy.
And it has come to pass - at 1750 UTC Sunday August 17 we turned east, then south east at 220.127.116.11N 093.57.28.2W. Half way Consultation is occurring. Slightly bigger Wooohooo!
And keep 'em crossed please. Looong way to go yet.
